Feng Shui is all about flow, and each new year, it is extremely auspicious to get rid of at least one piece of furniture you no longer need, and invite in at least one new piece. This rejuvenates the energy of your space and ensures it never gets stale. The same goes for the art you hang on your walls…
But be mindful that the art you hang, as well as evoking emotions that make you feel good, should harmonise nicely with the changing energies of the year.
Lucy has some great ideas for 2022… Have a read.
